    3. Format of the workshop

    Students will cover different areas of media coverage – TV, radio, internet. They will look at how to choose a story, and different story telling techniques.  The aim of the workshop is to provide hands-on activities for the students, enabling them to learn key journalistic/ reporting and camera skills, which can then be utilised in the students reporting. 

    Part 1 - Presentation

    The purpose of this section is to look at how to choose a story, examine different story telling techniques depending on what type of media being used, i.e. Tabloid, Broadsheet, Radio, Internet etc. Examine media ethics and how that affects the way a story is told. For example, why does the Sun exist and why is it the top selling newspaper?

    Part 2 – Newsroom Activity

    Students will engage in a newsroom scenario with a breaking news story.

    4. Places are limited

    Places are open to students 11 - 22 years. Due to popular demand, places are limited to a maximum of 10 students and 2 teachers per school, college or university.

The competition calls for young people to make a short film about the sustainable environment and technologies as part of the IET’s Faraday programme, a resource for teachers of science, technology, engineering and maths. Competition entries should consider how technology could help us overcome issues such as global warming, increasing populations, diminishing natural resources, pollution of rivers and oceans and challenges suffering world economies will bring to our town and cities.
